Emerging Research Leaders' Development Programme (ERLDP) 2016 - DEADLINE 18 March @ 5pm

last modified Feb 26, 2016 04:25 PM

 Applications are now invited for the 2016 cohort of the highly popular Emerging Research Leaders' Development Programme (ERLDP).

It offers a unique opportunity for you to develop and reflect upon your personal leadership style in the context of those who you lead in either an official or unofficial capacity.

This programme can help you:

  • explore your understanding of ‘leadership’ and assess the impact of this understanding on your current actions and behaviours;
  • understand relevant tools, techniques, models and theories to enable you to engage in ‘self-leadership’ as the starting point for leading others collaboratively and for your career management;
  • build your confidence and help you to realise your full potential.

ERLDP has been designed for Postdoctoral researchers / research staff in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) disciplines to achieve research independence in order to lead your own research group and/or to become a research leader in your field.

For more information about the programme, eligibility and the application process please here.

To arrange an informal chat about the programme please email Rebecca Nestor, Programme Director at:


Applications must be received by 5pm on 18 March 2016.
